...the ability to bulk-create References, Local Variables, Property Nodes...
Oh, and hmmmm.
If you bulk create Local Variables, a dialog box should pop up and say "Squid!"
I KNEW IT! Someone would say it. It took longer than I expected (7 hours into the workday Central Time), but Broken Arrow is dissing the locals. What a ham.
ADMITTEDLY... I almost left locals out of the idea, but left them in just for "completeness" of the idea. I don't think I would ever bulk-create locals, and if I do, only once for every 100 times I would bulk create a ref or PN.
SO.... I really want this idea to get implemented, but it would not hurt my feelings 0.125bytes if Locals don't make it into the bulk-create feature.
Yes a nice ask.
And @broken arrow
That would be nice lol!!!
I wrote a Quick Drop Keyboard Shortcut for this recently. Allows you to bulk create references, locals, property nodes, invoke nodes, constants, controls, or indicators...basically anything in the right-click > Create menu. You can get it here.
P.S. - It's equally handy for just creating a single instance of the desired object. I find I can type Ctrl-Space > ref > Ctrl-A faster than right-click > Create > Reference.
And again darren has done this already. Wonder how this guy is some 10 steps ahead..........
and by the way can you attach it for lv 8.0?
FWIW this is also possible with LabVIEW Speak as a voice command "Create Reference" on the selected objects.
You can see it in action in the first QEC plugin pack video around minute 4
I think this is a bad idea. The use of local variables should be very limited. They should not be created in bulk.
